An appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic #Party candidate for Akoko-Edo Federal Constituency, Oladele Bankole-Balogun, before the Court of Appeal sitting in Benin City against the judgment of the Edo #State #Election Petition #tribunal has thrown out.
THE NATION reports that the three-man appeal panel, led by Justice P.Ekpe, upheld the decision of the tribunal, pointing out that the issue bothers on section 4.1 Schedule of the Electoral Act.
It held that the non-signing of the petition pressumed that the first petitioner signed the entire petition which is not in agreement with the Electoral Act”.
Bankole-Balogun is challenging the election of Hon Peter Akpatason of the All Progressive Congress who was declared winner of the March 28, 2015 National Assembly election.
The lower tribunal led by Justice A.R.Ozoemena had struck out the petition against Akpatason for lack of merit.
It held that the #PDP did not sign the petition which according to the Tribunal, was a negation of the Electoral Act.
